Resources up for grabs for volunteers of GAC
Lawn Equipment and Supplies Available for Statewide Cleanup
Resources up for grabs for volunteers of Great American Cleanup™
Groups and organizations who have registered for the Great American Cleanup™ (GAC) in Oklahoma are eligible to enter an essay contest to win lawn and garden equipment donated by local company, P&K Equipment.
STIHL trimmers and leaf blowers are available as well as a Honda lawn mower. Participants must submit a 300-500 word essay explaining how this equipment would help their project in order to secure the items.
Keep Oklahoma Beautiful is also excited about another new partnership for the 2015 GAC. KIND Healthy Snacks has partnered with the GAC in Oklahoma to provide KIND products for all of the volunteers and participants.
"Here at KIND, our goal is to inspire people to do the kind thing for their body, taste buds, and world so we are very excited to be part of such a great cause that helps give back to the State of Oklahoma”, said Matthew McWilliams of KIND Healthy Snacks.

Support for the GAC is growing, Devon Energy, Oklahoma Department of Transportation, Oklahoma Turnpike Authority and OGE all help make the GAC an award-winning success each year. KOB is glad for the new support from P&K Equipment and KIND.
“As Oklahoma’s premier John Deere dealer, and with 10 locations across the state, we’re connected to the land and tied to our communities. And when we have an opportunity to support both the land and our local communities, it makes it that much better… that’s why this new partnership just made sense for us,” said Erin Wheeler, Advertising Coordinator of P&K Equipment. “We’re excited to award these local groups the tools and equipment they need to Keep Oklahoma Beautiful.”
Keep Oklahoma Beautiful is a statewide nonprofit with a mission to empower Oklahoma citizens to preserve and enhance the state’s natural beauty and ensure a healthy, sustainable environment.
